Any of you fuckers a toastmaster or a member of a debating club or anything at all like that


#1

Cos I’m a mouthy twat and need a place to run free.

Also I find every now and again I have a problem speaking - even though it’s what I could possibility call in the most self indulgent way possible a strength of mine - I’ve got a mental block about it. Every now and again it’s like my power is removed. I have to fight to FUCK to speak properly when in a meeting or room.

Other times I boss it like a boss.

Need to go somewhere and actually work on this skill. As un-British as this sounds. I genuinely believe it’s holding me back.

So anyone do anything like this?

Zero replies? Or worse - two token replies (the dreaded TTR).

Zuul seeks the toastmaster

#10

#11

I’m not going to lie to you


#12

let’s have a practice argument now. what would you like to argue about?


#13

Lexit, pros and cons


#14

It’s hard. I know i’m a big ol’ lefty at heart but when i hear people with comparable views airing them publically my overbearing thoughts aren’t along the lines of “Great, a similarly-minded human being with reasoned opinions i can relate to”, but more “What a fucking smarmy twat”. My self-loathing runs that deep.

One of my mates was asking what the most ethical backpack was.

Obviously mocked her for giving someone a blowjob in a toilet when she was in a wheelchair due to a broken leg and deleted her


#17

so many excellent things about this


#18

No, I argue with people for a living. Mostly in writing, though. Some oral (snrk) proceedings.

My first university girlfriend was a member of the debating society and dragged me along a few times. At St Andrews. Whatever you’re now imagining: it was much, much worse than that.

man, that’s the dream

NO IT ISN’T YOU SHIT CUNT
